At the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, she finished just off the podium in the 200m breaststroke with a fourth-place finish. She also finished sixth in the 100m breaststroke.
At the 2009 World Trials, McCabe earned her sport on her first senior international team by placing second in the 200m breaststroke, just behind world record holder Canadian Annamay Pierse. At the World Championships in Rome, McCabe would finish seventh.
